    Default "Six Californias" Initiative

    http://ballotpedia.org/%22Six_Califo...tiative_(2014)

    A "Six Californias" Initiative (#13-0063) has been submitted to the Office of the Attorney General of California, where it awaits a ballot title and a ballot summary prior to being approved for circulation as a contender for the November 4, 2014 ballot. It is an initiated constitutional amendment.
    Initiative #13-0063, if it qualifies for the ballot and is approved by the state's voters, will call on the United States Congress to officially divide California into six separate states.[1]
    Although Congress would ultimately make the decision about whether to divide the state into six states, and would also ultimately determine what the new boundaries would be, and what the new states would be called, the Draper initiative proposes these names and divisions:
    Central California, which would include the counties of Alpina, Calaveras, Fresno, Inyo, Kern, Kings, Madera, Mariposa, Merced, Mono, San Joaquin, Stanislaus, Tulare and Tuolumne.
    Jefferson, which would include the counties of Butte, Colusa, Del Norte, Glenn, Humboldt, Lake, Laasen, Mendocino, Modoc, Plumas, Siskiyou, Shasta, Tehama and Trinity.
    North California, which would include the counties of Amador, El Dorado, Marin, Napa, Nevada, Placer, Sacramento, Sierra, Solano, Sonoma, Sutter, Yolo and Yuba.
    Silicon Valley, which would include the counties of San Mateo, Santa Clara, Alameda, Contra Costa, San Francisco, San Benito, Santa Cruz and Monterey.
    South California, which would include the counties of Imperial, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino and San Diego.
    West California, which would include the counties of Santa Barbara, San Luis Obispo, Los Angeles and Ventura.

    I found this interesting, especially because I know a lot of members here live in California.

    So I guess if this happens I guess we'll be the ones paying for all of the border patrol Also this will cost whos knows how much money getting new maps and altering education and laws and the list goes on and on. Honestly this is a bad idea in so many ways. I dont see how "South California" will be making a lot of revenue since we wont be benefiting from crops in the Central Valley. Comic Con and Qualcom Stadium are 2 of the biggest sources of income for SD county but theyve been wanting to take business elsewhere since the city wont expand the stadium and convention center(because of public/private property which needs to be demolished). Theres a thin sliver of life along the coast and then you go west about 50 miles or so and its baron desert. Unless theres a sudden explosion in the Yucca tree, milkweed, and or sand industries then things arent going to look so good. Well, for us down south at least.

    That's what I was thinking. I don't honestly see why this is even necessary.

    Each state only gets two senators. How is it possible for just two senators to reflect the interests of 38 million people?

    Exactly. Plus the whole process of setting up new state governments would take forever. There only seems to be negatives to this idea.
